The Roller Coaster Ride

Published by

This ride is so scary.
There are so many drops.
I pray for the uphills.
But yet, they’re so small.

Sometimes I wish for the ride to be over.
But, it continues to go on.

It seems like when an uphill starts coming up,
Unexpectedly, I turn a different way,
And head down another drop.

How much farther down can I drop?
It seems that I am already so far down.
People try to help me reach the uphills,
But they always fail and I fall right back down.

So many people have already given up.
I wish I could give up too,
Because all I see ahead are drops,
But I see no end.
It’s still so very far ahead.
It’s almost like it never ends.

All the pain.
The suffering.
I wish it could end.
But alas, it is hopeless.

I am a coward.
I will have to continue,
Living through my, which seems, never ending nightmare.
As people take advantage of me and I no longer care.
Or do anything to stop it.
Because it is hopeless.
I am hopeless…

As I sit here,
Slowly dying inside.
Losing all hope.
And all I can see now is darkness.
As it surrounds me,
Taking me away from those who care about me,
And I let no one in,
‘Cause I am afraid to be hurt anymore.

For if I am hurt anymore,
I may break,
And never be the same.
I will no longer be the girl everyone sees me as.
I will be nothing.
A forgotten memory.

In my place will lie glass,
From my shattered dreams.
From my thoughts that were never shared.
A shadow,
From my destroyed heart.
And a small ball of light,
From the hope,
That I have lost…

  1. I know how it feels when you fail and when you fall. I’ve been there before, but don’t give up yet. If you made it this far, keep on hoping or else everything will just be a dream and you fail.

  2. I hope you are able to get rid of the pain and get off “the roller coaster”!!! Sad poem but very nicely written!
